Good for you, CBS! I pray your are the broadcaster who can revive daytime dramas with one or two new programs some day. Oh, how I still miss ATWT and GL! I am pleased the Eye embraces the genre and the daypart with a solid ad campaign!

I do not want to see Nick with Chelsea, but I also do not want him to reunite with Sharon for the millionth time. Why don’t they mix it up a little? Stop with the repeat cycle and try Hillary out with Nick? Ravi should be romantically linked to Mariah, not Ashely–those two do not fit. Billy and Victoria also need to stop with the repeat cycle and find love else where.

Addison, I agree with what you wrote about Nick and Chelsea-boring and zero chemistry. Ravi and Mariah, ugh, that would give Mariah even more air-time and I find the actress/character to be really obnoxious. I love Ashley and agree that she has zero chemistry with Ravi-just ridiculous that someone like Ashley would be so protective of her employee. I could do without the train wreck of Billy’s life and Victoria-the actress has no chemistry with anyone, IMO & seriously, does she need to continue to remind two grown men that she is “the boss.” Give me a break.

I love that commercial. Nice to see the network letting viewers know that there are still stars to watch during the day. Maybe not as big as Denzel or Julia but they’re still big names worth seeing every day.

I do not understand why the ratings are down for Y&R. I do not fast forward through any of Y&R and today’s show (2/14-17) was pitch perfect. I loved Ashely thinking back about her father which was served up to us with flashbacks. Jack is back to acting like ole smiling Jack and that’s good to see. I have to amend my earlier post in which I said that I didn’t think Ashely and Rave fit. Today, those two won me over–Ravi is incredibly sweet and Ashely could use a little of that in her life right now. I also… Read more »

Emmanuel Acho Replaces Chris Harrison as Host of ‘The Bachelor’ Finale ‘After the Final Rose’ Special

Former NFL linebacker and Fox Sports analyst and host of the weekly web series Uncomfortable Conversations With a Black Man, Emmnauel Acho has gotten the nod to replace longtime ‘Bachelor’ franchise host, Chris Harrison, for this season’s ‘After the Final Rose’ special.

On Saturday, in an Instagram post confirming the news, Acho wrote, “I’ve accepted the Rose and am honored to be hosting the @bachelorabc After the Final Rose this year. It’s been a pivotal season, and this episode will hopefully be one of the most storied shows in TV history. Empathy is needed and change is coming. Share the news! I’ll see y’all then!”

Previously, Chris Harrison revealed that he was stepping aside from The Bachelor after he made controversial remarks to Rachel Lindsey during her interview with him on Extra.  At that time, Harrison and Lindsey, who was the first Black Bachelorette in the series history, were discussing current contestant Rachael Kirkconnell’s controversy, which included photos of her attending an antebellum-themed college party in 2018, and allegedly liking and sharing social media posts with the Confederate flag and Qanon conspiracies.  Harrison’s comments seemed to indicate he felt people were passing judgement on Kirkconnell on this time of ‘cancel culture’ in our society.  Those remarks inflamed viewers and Lindsey.  As Bachelor Nation knows this season featured Matt James as the first Black bachelor ever within the franchise.

As for Acho, he will anchor the After the Rose special airing on Monday, March 15, immediately following the season finale of The Bachelor. He will sit down with James as well as the three finalists Kirkconnell, Michelle Young and Bri Springs, which is said to include talon the past racist remarks made by Kirkconnell and Harrison’s exit for the special.

So, what do you think about ABC’s choice to replace Chris Harrison for the ‘After the Final Rose” special?  Has this whole season of ‘The Bachelor’ backfired when it should have been groundbreaking? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
